JUST THE FAXON
Roger Faxon Named Chairman/CEO of EMI Music Publishing
Now that Marty’s gone, Roger’s the guy.

Fulfilling a succession plan first revealed more than two years ago to replace longtime EMI Music Publishing guru Martin Bandier, who will join Sony/ATV, Roger Faxon was named Chairman/CEO.

EMI Group CEO Eric Nicoli said: "Roger is the ideal person to lead the next stage of EMI Music Publishing's development with his strategic insight, his digital prowess, his passion for and knowledge of music publishing and his vision for the company. With his highly talented and creative management team and EMI Music Publishing's outstanding roster of songwriters and catalogue, the company is in great hands and has excellent prospects. And the man is a huge fan of my Yorkie Bars.

"We are grateful for all that Martin Bandier has contributed to EMI over the past 17 years and wish him the very best for the future."

Last month, EMI Music Publishing celebrated a record haul at the Brit awards as its writers won six of the 12 categories, including Arctic Monkeys, Amy Winehouse, the Fratellis, Nelly Furtado and Take That members Jason Orange and Howard Donald. At the Grammys three days earlier its successes included awards for Beyonce, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, The Flaming Lips, Pharrell Williams and Madonna.

For the past year, Faxon has been president and co-CEO of EMI Music Publishing, and prior to that President and COO of the division. From 2002 to January 2005, he was the CFO of EMI Group. Prior to that, he was EVP and CFO of EMI Music Publishing for three years. He joined EMI in 1994 as SVP Worldwide Business Development and strategy.

Between 1990 and 1994, Faxon worked at Sotheby's, including a period as CEO of Sotheby's Europe. Throughout the '80s, he worked at a number of film and TV companies, including Tri-Star and Columbia Pictures, where his roles included Senior EVP of Columbia Pictures, Mount Company, where he was a founding partner of the company whose movies included Frantic, Bull Durham and Tequila Sunrise, and LUCASFILM Ltd., where he was EVP/COO, responsible for guiding the financial and operational affairs of the company, including the films Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
